Principles of a quality work-based learning practice

Over the time frame of the Skills 4 Work project, partners deliberated and agreed on five core principals that are necessary for the quality work-based learning practice. These are as follows:

  1. Develop the knowledge, experience and skills of all teachers and trainers working in the field of work-based learning
  2. Ensure that learning institutions and employers collaborate effectively so that they are regularly sharing information
  3. Ensure that all learners have the skills and opportunities to reflect critically on their participation in work-based learning
  4. Provide clarity around the roles and responsibilities of all those involved in work-based learning
  5. develop reliable and valid assessments for work-based learning
